Will paginate and sorting..

Hello,
   I have my own functions in the controller and i want to use will
paginate.
when i use will paginate then i face the following problems,
1.I cannot sort the commplete results after search...i can only sort the
results that are there on a particular page but not the whole set of
results.

2. Since i am using my own defined functions in the controller clicking
on the
next page in will_paginate takes me to a controller action (i think
index or show) which in my application has nothing to do with
searching..so i get an error.
What do i need to do
Thank you.

Hi, what does your user defined function do that the conditions has doesn’t

do? In any case, here’s a good Railscast that handles this very nicely:

Good luck,

See http://mislav.uniqpath.com/static/will_paginate/doc/ and click on the
WillPaginate::Collection link on the left and read the docs on create().
